Daniel Galvin at Corinthia

I was invited to the Daniel Galvin Salon at the Corinthia hotel in London a while back with a bunch of other bloggers on a weekend to pamper ourselves with a treatment of our choice.

I opted for a hair gloss treatment along with a voluminous blow dry and I was so glad I did! 

First of all, the hotel itself is so grand and absolutely beautiful yet welcoming and warm at the same time, credit for which I will give to its very friendly and helpful staff. I usually feel a bit uncomfortable in such hotels but this was pretty good comparatively!

The salon itself was placed on a separate floor dedicated to such spa like pampering treatments. We were first given a mini tour of the place which also included a visit to the VIP Make-over room which was pure extravaganza and targeted towards celebrities and bride-to-be's with a traditional barbers chair and professional make-up lights and so on. 

I personally quite liked the buzzing yet serene atmosphere of the salon itself. It wasn't intimidating at all and had very lush seating and equipments. 

The gloss treatment that I opted for took 15 minutes in which I managed to chat up to a few bloggers besides me in the not so attractive straining-my-head-on-the-basin position.

I was given a 30 minute blow-dry by a very lovely senior stylish and I made it clear that I wanted volume and some curls, which he very aptly achieved via a blow dryer! How cool is that? 

My hair looked absolutely stunning and super glossy after the treatment and I got so many compliments from other bloggers there. The picture does not represent how lovely my hair looked there but anyhoo...

We were also given a bunch of Daniel Galvin hair products to try out which I thought were pretty good for the price. First of all, their products are free from any SLS, Parabens, Silicone Oils, Petrochemicals and Polymers.

Secondly, they smell so citrusy and refreshing and I like how the scent lingers around on the hair for a while after washing. 

Last but not the least, the Shampoo and the Conditioner actually made my hair really soft and did not irritate my scalp at all. I think I will purchase the Conditioner in particular, once I run out of my bottle and it would be great to use once a week or so, so my hair doesn't get used to it. 

I would highly recommend you visiting the Salon and enjoying the luxurious pampering treatments they offer at Corinthia on a lazy weekend. Their Conditioning Treatments are actually quite reasonable, for all under £30 which would be something you'd like to try.
